This was not my machine. In my manual I have seen nothing explaining sewing with the presser foot up. I have changed the needle, messed with tension, and rethreaded it to standard. I was hoping to talk to someone who has worked on industrial machines.
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

I personally have no worked on this machine before but I will certainly open this up to other experts to see if they may be able to assist further.
